Man slams Welwyn Hatfield Council over bailiff threat
A FORMER Times Territory resident has expressed his disgust at Welwyn Hatfield Council over a row involving council tax.
Richard Abbott has been threatened with bailiffs over one month’s unpaid council tax, amounting to around �280.
However, he told the Welwyn Hatfield Times he doesn’t owe the council a penny – and has the paperwork to prove it.
Mr Abbott, who lived in Grove Place, Welham Green, before moving to Cramlington, near Newcastle, in October, said he had sent the council copies of this paperwork together with a number of emails.
Yet despite this, he still has the threat of the repo men hanging over him.
